Great summer wedding dress!

I ordered a 4 and 6 based on the reviews and my large hips. The size 4 was a bit loose and long for my petite frame. The material was also somewhat worn and fraying, and not as sturdy as I was hoping for. I would've liked to size down to a 2. However, the dress worked well overall and I got a ton of compliments on it. I'd recommend it for a range of spring/summer events!

Fun summer dress!

I rented this dress for my informal backyard groom's dinner, and it was a hit! The fabric and beading sparkle, and the blue and silver colors felt bridal. If you're small chested, consider wearing a strapless bra with some padding to fill out the bust a bit. I'm usually a 4, and the dress fit well overall.

Honeymoon Photos

I rented this dress for honeymoon photos in Disney. The dress was snug around my hips, but fit well. The attached rhinestones I thought were silver, but they were actually clear. I had no disappointments with this dress!

Fit perfectly, very comfortable and the process was easy. My daughter told me, "You look like a grown up Elsa." My first experience with RTR, and I will definitely do this again.

This dress looked stunning on! I wore it for my bridal shower and felt beautiful!

This dress fit beautifully, even with a smaller waist and curvy hips! It hugged all the right places and was very comfortable, I even kept it on for a night out on the town!! I would definitely recommend this dress rental to my friends! I was complimented on it all day and even had people looking at RTR for the first time at the shower they were so intrigued by it! Great experience for my second RTR and I will be using this site again soon!

My favorite RTR yet!

I loved how this Lilly fit! I got so many compliments! I was afraid that even the 2 would be too long on me but it was just the right length.

Beautiful Sparkle

This was a beautiful dress. I normally wear a 6 which fit great! I chose to wear the 8 because it added a little more length that I found appropriate for the wedding. Just a gorgeous dress with many, many compliments. I started out wearing with heels, later in the evening switched to sparkle flip flops and still gorgeous!

Beautiful shift dress, delicate beading

I really enjoyed wearing this dress. It has the perfect amount of shine. The beading on top seemed very, very easily damaged.

Versatile Dress

I wore this for family photos then my son's baptism. It was great for both occasions and photographs very well. It's a little loose around the midsection but it didn't bother me.

Fabulous dress under lights!

Rented this for when I was crowned homecoming queen and was perfect for the football field! WAY more shinny than originally expect but worked well. The cut of the dress is flattering but would sometimes show your bra though the arm hole, great length and modest

Beautiful color dress

This dress was beautiful. It is great for an outdoor spring/summer event, like a wedding. The dress is very modest, not too short or low cut. The neckline has great embellishments, no need for a necklace. I wore this dress with Nicole miller southern plantation earrings from RTR. Received a ton of compliments.

Beautiful dress! Wish they had it in the 00 because the length was a little on the longer side and it could have been a little tighter.

Perfect fit! Loved the sparkle!

I loved renting this dress for an evening summer wedding! The ice blue color was beautiful and the sheen and beading was great and I didn't need jewelry except earring. The actual fabric of the dress was much shinier than it appears in the picture so if you're not looking for that beware! For me it was perfect. The size was very true to fit for me. Hugged at the hips and chest but in a good way! I have a larger chest and liked the way the dress filled out without being too revealing. If you're looking for a nice cocktail dress that stands out from the crowd this is your bet!

GORGEOUS dress for my baby shower

I was nervous to rent this dress as I had no idea how big I would be at 34 weeks (8.5 months) pregnant. I would normally wear a 0 or 2 in a shift dress but as a growing pregnant gal, I knew I would need to go up multiple sizes. The 6 fit great but was definitely snug. The 6 made it fit more "body con" and the 8 would have been more true "shift dress". With that being said, the color and quality of this dress was AMAZING! Some mentioned it had too much bling. Not in my mind! The ice-y blue and silver pattern (sort of a zebra pattern) was beautiful and the neckline sparkle made the dress really stand out. I received so many compliments and the color matched my shower theme perfectly.

Love the fit and the accessories I rented too, made wearing this so much fun.

LOVE this dress! The fit is incredibly forgiving- I'm normally a 6/8 and the 4 fit without being tight. I love that this dress is elegant and sparkly! The color is beautiful.

Great color and fit

This was my second choice, but it was a great dress for my white coat ceremony. I had to walk across the stage to receive my coat, and because of the color my family definitely couldn't miss me! The beading is very heavy, so I had to fix the collar multiple times. It's also very bright and mermaid-like. I probably won't choose this dress again, but I'm happy I wore it for this occasion.

Fabulous all around

Thank goodness for the always wonderful customer service! I have recently lost weight for my wedding and rented a 10&8 not realizing how many dress sizes I was down. They did not have a 6 available, so I went for the 4 and it worked! Both the 8&4 fit in a way that my bra showed around the arm holes, but not to a point I was self conscious at all. The 4 was a little tight around the bust (I'm a 34/36DD) but not uncomfortable or smushed at all! Definitely agree with the other reviews that say it doesn't appear the same in person as it does photographed - I think in person it's better! No need for big jewelry with this one; the beading at the neckline is chunky and fun and definitely does the trick. Great for a work gala - professional length and cut but has an awesome wow factor. I didn't want to return this one! If you've been checking this one out - rent it and enjoy!!

This dress looked and felt expensive; I felt so clever for having rented such a stunner!

This dress was SO flattering! It has a great shape and the fabric was thick and gracious. It was comfortable to dance in too! I selected "runs large" because I haven't worn a size 6 since 2007. After reading some of the other reviews, I ordered a 6 and an 8 (as opposed to 8 and a 10). When I zipped up that size 6, it definitely put an extra pep in my step! My husband called this my "frozen" dress, but the silver/ice blue combo was perfect for a spring wedding. And the jewels at the neckline were stunning! Loads of compliments all night!

Dress was beautiful and I received a ton of compliments.

Fit was true to size it was a bit snug in the stomach area so I'd you have a larger tummy might size up. I liked the dress on but I loved it in pictures. Overall it was very comfortable and I'd recommend to anyone.

This dress really stunned. Got so many compliments and the pictures don't do it justice.

Perfect for a summer wedding or dressy event. The dress sparkles and fits very nicely. I usually wear between a size two and four, but opted to go with the two for a more form fitted look. I had no issues with it and absolutely would recommend this dress to anyone. You'll get lots of compliments!

Back up dress

I rented this as my backup dress. It was classy and beautiful! It was very hard for me to decide between this one and the one I wore. The only thing I didn't like about this dress was that it pokes out at the hips. I don't have very big hips, but it made them look wide because of the stitching in the dress.

Lots of compliments!

This is a beauty by Lilly and I am glad I rented it. The picture shown was the size 4 but I ended up changing into the 6 during cocktail hour( we were staying at the venue) the 6 gave me a little more room. Both fit great but I am not one to wear very fitting outfits. The neckline is gorgeous and this is a steal if you want to wear Lilly but don't want to pay full price!

Every person I greeted gave me a compliment !

I rented the dress for my daughter's sweet 16. It was a perfect "hip mom" with glamor and because I my curves it turned out to be pretty sexy. I normally wear a 10 and with it being called a shift dress I thought it was more loose but it was pretty snug. I'm a 34 DDD. So I'd say if you have curves to go a size up and get a little more space to move.

Fit true to size- showed cleavage but not too much. A lot of people asked where I got my dress. Only annoying thing was the beaded collar sometimes flipped inward due to its weight- not much you can do about that though unless you stick it to your chest!

Seriously loved this dress!! The beading and fabric make it much dressier than most Lilly shifts, but it was comfortable and classic. Fit true to size and very comfortable to dance in! Received compliments all night - the fabric really makes it stand out! Would definitely rent again...in fact, I wish I just owned it!!

Size runs very large for Lilly

I usually wear Lilly dresses and got the same size I always wear but this cut is super wide. There was no way I could pull it off the stomach area down was noticeably large and so wide it wasn't flattering. Unfortunately the size down was not available so I was unable to wear this dress.

Not as good as the picture

This is a gorgeous dress on the model, but looks nothing like the it in person. It definitely has more of a grey color and is not intended for curvy women. I thankfully picked this up at the 18th street store and thankfully had a chance to try it on before I left the store. The size 10 was too big and when I asked for the 8 (because for my back up RTR advised to go one size up so I had the 12), the 8 wasn't available. I actually ended up being glad because I think the 8 would've fit better but the color would still be really bad. In some ways, I was glad this happened because I was able to choose another dress at the store. The second dress was much better and I was happy with that rental. It's just a shame because the cut of the dress was really nice otherwise and it would've been fine for the wedding I was attending.

This would have been the perfect dress for the Kentucky Derby. Not worn because it was too big.

This dress ran big. I usually wear size 2, but this dress was too large on me. They were out of the 0 when I ordered so I chose a 4 as my backup size. I loved the look of the dress, but sadly it was not worn.
